Councilman Mike Feuer, a leading candidate for Los Angeles city attorney, on Friday accused his main competitor of colluding with a billboard company to receive an illegal campaign contribution. In a letter to the city's Ethics Commission, Feuer's campaign consultant said a new Web site for Deputy Mayor Rocky Delgadillo uses graphics identical to one that Eller Media Co. used on billboard signs it recently put up to support Delgadillo.

Weighing in on the race for Los Angeles city attorney, an outdoor advertising firm has put up signs on some of its large billboards urging voters to choose Deputy Mayor Rocky Delgadillo. The signs, valued at $40,000, represent the first "independent expenditure" for any of the candidates vying for city offices in the April 10 election, according to the city Ethics Commission. The term refers to spending by a person or group outside a candidate's campaign.

Eller Media Co., which by one name or another has been in the billboard business for almost a century, is located on the frayed edges of downtown Los Angeles. Almost in defiance of the decaying neighborhood, a large, bucolic mural greets visitors at the company's entryway. Based on a 1920s photograph of 3rd and Rampart, the mural depicts an unpaved road winding through a verdant, flower-filled landscape.

Re "Tobacco, Alcohol Billboards Criticized," March 5. As a representative of Eller Media Co., the No. 1 outdoor advertising company in Ventura County and the United States, I take strong issue with the claim that Oxnard residents are being "targeted" and "bombarded" by the advertising of alcohol and tobacco products on billboards. An advertiser's 1st Amendment right to advertise legal products aside, out of the total of 125 locations we maintain in Ventura County, only four have advertised alcohol products this year.

Outdoor Systems Inc. and an Eller Media Co. unit have settled lawsuits accusing them of failing to comply with a state law banning tobacco advertisements near schools. Each agreed to post free anti-smoking messages for 250 "billboard months," or the number of billboards involved multiplied by the number of months at each spot. The settlement ended a suit by San Francisco's Center for Environmental Health to enforce the state law that took effect Jan.

A local bus-shelter company is objecting to the city's plan to award a 10-year contract to a competing firm based in New York. Orange-based Eller Media Co., which has held the city's contract for 16 years, said the New York firm has only one local franchise and would offer fewer services for the 230 shelters and 463 benches now at bus stops around the city. City officials said they believe Culver Associates LTD will provide greater revenue.

The outdoor advertising firm that trumpeted Deputy Mayor Rocky Delgadillo's campaign for Los Angeles city attorney is keeping at least some of its signs up through the June 5 runoff, according to a notice filed Friday with the city Ethics Commission. The notification by Eller Media Co. that it is spending $120,000 on 12 billboard signs as an "independent expenditure" supporting Delgadillo lifts the spending limit that Delgadillo and his runoff opponent, Councilman Mike Feuer, had agreed to.
